In recent years, the trend away from the conventional department store to a stimulating shopping center or outlet stores has continued apace. Visitors during their shopping expeditions do not only expect a wide range of different branded products supported by amazing promotions but they also want to be captivated by something of an eventful character. The same goes for dining and drinking.
In most cases, large restaurants that resembled a canteen could be found on the top floor of such a department store. But these are no longer contemporary, while food courts are increasingly establishing their image. An area within a building, in which there are outlets of various independent restaurants and snack bars, but where seating is arranged in jointly used, centrally located groups. The range of participating restaurants and snack bars may vary greatly from one location to another; restaurants of fast food chains and other catering outlets are often present. Local services are included among them as well.
THE SIXTY-NINTH SHOPPING EXPERIENCE FOR BERLIN
Between the Mercedes-Benz Arena and the Warsaw Bridge, Berlin’s sixty-ninth shopping center, the East Side Mall, has recently opened. Around 120 stores are located in the East Side Mall on an area of approximately 38,000 square meters and three levels. They include retailers, service, restaurant and leisure activity outlets. You can access the shopping center on Mercedes Platz via two main entrances – from the Warsaw Bridge and from the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Around 720 parking spaces are available. And, of course, a food court to tempt you with culinary delights from Italian and vegan dishes, superb sushi to a tasty burger.
REINHOLD KELLER AS THE SPECIALIST FOR BERLIN'S EAST SIDE MALL
In recent years, we have converted food courts in many German cities, so those in charge of the East Side Mall’s construction easily found their way to REINHOLD KELLER. Room partitions, free-standing furniture such as tables and chairs as well as a whole number of lockers were included in our technical specifications in this case.
Long life for furniture is a fundamental factor for such a mall, in which several thousand visitors move around every day and therefore subject the interior fittings to a lot of stress.
We are delighted to have made our contribution to the East Side Mall and wish our clients all the best.
